It sounded like The Grateful Dead covering Jethro Tull.

Like Terrapin in concert, on record it goes on far too long repeating the same thing.

It would have been better to reduce the fanfare drastically and morph to Transit and out. Maybe the producer thought the stuff waiting in the wings was too weak.

I'm not sure if Terrapin itself was limiting, but the best the Grateful Dead did with it was fading to Drums. Was there ever a segue to another song?

Oh yeah, Garcia. I liked the sound collage stuff too, and esp the crazy graphic in the songbook. It's not mentioned much but parts were heard on demo reels and a Cher perfume commercial.

Damn...where were all of you when I needed you in the great Terrapin as melodrama debate some months ago with Trumpethead?
